[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="500" caption="The Indianapolis Colts have officially signed third-round pick T.Y Hilton"][/caption] The Indianapolis Colts made two somewhat significant moves today, starting with the waiving of UDFA safety Micah Pellerin. Taking Pellerin's spot on the roster is cornerback Korey Lindsey, a seventh round pick by the Bengals in 2011. Lindsey was cut by the Bengals before training camp, and then was claimed by the Arizona Cardinals, which whom he spent most of his time on the practice squad. The Colts also made progress on their 2012 draft picks' contracts today, signing T.Y. Hilton to a four-year deal, according to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports (and then confirmed by Irsay a little while later). This leaves Andrew Luck, Coby Fleener, and Dwayne Allen unsigned. Again, I urge fans not to be worried over the time it is taking to get these rookies signed. Only seven of the 32 teams have currently signed all of their picks, and four teams have yet to sign any of them. Fleener and Allen have been very energetic participants in OTAs, and Luck has expressed significant displeasure in the fact that he is unable to attend. The Colts are in no way in danger of long holdouts over contracts for their rookies, or anything that would cause them to miss time with the team.

To Use or Not to Use: The Forgotten Fullback

Over the past decade, the Colts have rarely used a fullback. It simply was unnecessary with a two tight end system and a quarterback who excelled in using his tight ends in the passing game. That lack of a fullback has caused many Colts fans to forget about the fullback when speculating on the 2012 roster.  It's not just Colts' fans that forget about them though. If your...

Gonzalez is a former 1st round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2007 NFL Draft, but thanks to injuries, he’s played just 2 games over the last 3 seasons, catching 5 passes. The Patriots didn’t have a ton of room at wide receiver and likely just brought Anthony Gonzalez...
